Manchester City’s hopes of a third consecutive Premier League title lie in tatters after they blew a two goal lead v Wolves.
Pep Guardiola’s side collapsed late in the piece, after a Raheem Sterling double had given them what looked a comfortable lead.
However, with only ten men on the pitch thanks to Ederson’s early red card, City simply folded as Wolves pressed in the final minutes.
Three late goals saw Wolves turn the game on its head with Matt Doherty’s late winner consigning City to their fifth loss of the season.
It must have made glorious viewing for Liverpool fans as they watched their fierce rivals effectively fall further off the pace in the title race.
The Reds are now 14 points clear of the Sky Blues and, incredibly, have a game in hand as well.
Kopites will be getting louder and louder as their maiden Premier League title approaches, embracing that ‘Unbearable’s’ tag certain groups of opposing fans have handed them.
However, it seems that other fans are backing the Reds to clinch that elusive title, jumping on the bandwagon and trolling City fans at will.
One particular fan at Molineux has been branded a Liverpool hero after proudly showing the fans in the away end a picture of Jordan Henderson lifting the Champions League trophy.

Brilliant – the smug little look on his face says it all.
Unsurprisingly, Liverpool fans are absolutely loving it, making sure the unknown Wolves fan gets his moment in the limelight.
It really was a first class bit of banter and he deserves all the love Kopites are piling on him.
There are still 20 games to play but, with a 13 point lead, (potentially more after their game in hand) Liverpool are romping to the title.
While the last six months have been littered with happy memories of that famous night in Madrid, 2020 could be packed full of pictures of Henderson lifting the holy grail for Liverpool fans.
Anfield could be in for one almighty party in May.
